RUCU OGM 23rd March 13:00

Our termly General Meeting will take place in a fortnight’s time, between 1pm and 2 pm on Tuesday the 23rd of March. There are a number of issues to discuss, not least the difficulties the Branch’s health and safety officers are having in getting proper access to the University’s procedures to protect staff and students in the face of the pandemic that our Branch President highlighted in her email last week.

There has also recently been a new valuation of USS, which UCU nationally has described as relying on fundamentally flawed assumptions to endanger a healthy scheme (https://www.ucu.org.uk/article/11437/UCU-response-to-USS-trustee-update), and locally we are working to implement the agreement to improve and regularise the position of teaching-intensive staff at the University you overwhelmingly endorsed in the ballot before Christmas: (https://reading.web.ucu.org.uk/2020/12/18/rucu-claim-collective-agreement-ballot-result-18-12-20/ and https://reading.web.ucu.org.uk/2020/12/04/claim-agreement-ballot-enclosure/).

We will separately circulate an agenda and a joining link for the meeting closer to the time.
